A planned meeting between Liz Truss and U.S President Joe Biden before the Queen’s funeral has been cancelled, Downing Street has said.

No 10 said a “full bilateral meeting” between the PM and Mr Biden would instead take place at the U.N General Assembly on Wednesday.

Ms Truss met her counterparts from New Zealand and Australia yesterday.

The prime minister held informal talks with Jacinda Ardern and Australian premier Anthony Albanese at Chevening House in Kent.

And Number 10 confirmed Ms Truss will see Irish Taoiseach [prime minister] Micheál Martin, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau, and Polish President Andrzej Duda at Downing Street today.

Although she met Mr Biden when she was foreign secretary, next week’s UN meeting with him in New York will be Ms Truss’s first as UK prime minister.
